Thanks!  That worked well.

(Do let us all know if you see problems.  It's my own fault for not asking
earlier, but this info would have saved me quite a bit of time trying to
figure out how to get the bootclasspath properly set in Ant when invoking
javac via Java.  I overlooked the "executable" flag.)

I tried this and couldn't get it to work.  I don't know exactly why, but
now it doesn't much matter.
